i have a question. yeah?
how smart do you have to be to have sex? well, actually... uh-uh-uh... can i...? uh-uh-uh... but i was... uh-uh-uh! oh, come on. uh-uh-uh! why do you ask? well, mom's boyfriend's a doctor. yeah? and doctors are supposed to be smart, right? not as smart as they think they are, but, uh... but go ahead. well, when i'm in bed, i can hear them in bed. oh, god. oh, boy. oh, goody. and mom's always telling him that he doesn't know what he's doing. how much do i love this kid? don't interrupt, charlie. go on, sweetheart. so i'm thinking sex must be a lot harder than i figured. i mean, she has to tell him the same thing every night. every night, you say? berta. you had a semi-annual subscription, didn't you? come on, you guys. please?
can't help you. sorry, no. look, jake, it's, it's not that you have to be particularly smart to have sex. both: yeah, look at your dad. jinx. you owe me a coke. think of it this way. suppose you like banana cream pie. i do like banana cream pie. well, good. do we have any? no. well, then, why'd you bring it up? i was trying to tell you something about sex. what does pie have to do with sex? can i jump in? uh-uh-uh! how about me? excuse me, but if i can't talk, you can't talk. am i right, alan? anyway... if you don't tell me you like banana cream pie and i keep bringing home something else... but i just told you i like it. you want to know what kind of pie your uncle charlie likes? uh-uh! oh, come on. i... uh-uh-uh! i'm guessing cherry. uh-uh-uh! please. i've got this. you've got squat.
at this rate, the kid's only gonna get a stiffie at marie callendar's. ok. ok. forget the pie. uncle charlie said, "stiffie." yeah, i heard him. my point is you don't have to worry about being smart enough to have sex, ok? ok. in fact, there are times when brains and imagination are a distinct disadvantage. like when you've been married for 12 years and you're only allowed to do the same three things over and over again... in exactly the same way and exactly the same order, like you're some kind of unthinking machine or a trained fricking monkey. ok. honestly, how much more damage could we have caused? i bet monkeys like banana cream pie.
